  • Print

CHESTER-LE-STREET, England - England, without injured captain Alastair Cook, won the toss and chose to bowl first against touring Sri Lanka in the second one-day international at Durham on Sunday.

Cook was ruled out because of a right groin strain and was replaced at the top of the batting order by Michael Carberry in England's only change from Thursday's first ODI, won by the home team to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Eoin Morgan replaced Cook as captain.

The Sri Lankans made two changes, with Dhammika Prasad and Ashan Priyanjan in for Suranga Lakmal and Thisara Perera.
